What They Are Asking: Feeling Detached During Intercourse

December 03, 2012
The CSPH

What They Are Asking is an ongoing sexuality education collective created by sexuality professionals to “highlight the desperate need for individuals to receive medically accurate, comprehensive education regarding sexuality.” Every Monday, ten anonymous question cards are posted on the website, and viewers have the opportunity to vote throughout the week on the question they want answered most by one of the contributing educators. The CSPH highlights the videos created by WTAA educators every Sunday.

This week, author and sex educator, Sinclair Sexsmith, answers What They Are Asking’s top voted question for the week of December 3, 2012: “What if you shut down or feel detached during intercourse? How do you get back into it? How do you stay in the moment?”

    i feel very detached sometimes during sex. I love my partner, so i dont understand why this would happen. I feel safe with him. sometimes i dont recognize him, or i feel as if i am not there. the whole thing seems unreal.
